Author has written 30 stories for Supernatural, Horror, Sci-Fi, General, and Essay.

Hey, I'm Brian and I'm 21 years old. I've been writing stories here and there since I was little, and english has always been a favorite subject of mine. I've only begun writing seriously in the past few years -- just a little before I found fictionpress, actually.

I'm not holding out a lot of hope on getting famous and published and whatnot, but of course it would be nice if it ever did happen. I write mostly for the creative outlet it provides, and also I write because I like to think that people enjoy reading what I come up with.

If you haven't read any of my stories yet you wouldn't realize that the human mind is one of my favorite subjects. The things it's capable of, the things it can conjur up, it fascinates me. A lot of my stories describe nothing more than hallucinations of the characters -- or events that seem real but in the end leave the character wondering if they actually were. I guess it doesn't make for such a satisfying ending, but I like them anyhow.

Since I'm bored, and since I can't decide what direction I want to go in with my next story, I'll introduce myself a little more thoroughly.

Name: Brian
Age: 21

Favorite Authors: H.P. Lovecraft, Michael Crichton, Stephen King, John Grisham, Chuck Palahniuk.

If you haven't read "The Shadow over Innsmouth" by Lovecraft, you need to do so right now. You can find the complete story on a number of websites.

Favorite Bands: 311, A Perfect Circle, Tool, Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Billy Joel, Incubus, Everclear, Godsmack, Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana, Oasis, Pink Floyd, Tonic, REM, Counting Crows, Our Lady Peace, Staind (The first two albums, mostly), The Eagles, Van Morrison, Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, The Clash, many more.

Favorite Movies: Fight Club (number one favorite), followed closely by Garden State, The Illusionist, and anything else that makes you think.

"...and while it may seem somewhat far fetched, know that everything imaginable exists somewhere, somehow. There can be no impossibilities if our universe is truly infinite."
-Me

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all of it's contents."
-H.P. Lovecraft


"Almost nobody dances sober, unless they happen to be insane."
-H.P. Lovecraft
